“My relationship with Cass was not the most stable relationship for years” – Khuli Chana. During his latest interview with The Plug magazine Khuli Chana opened up about different topics concerning his music and professional relationships.
The Ichu rapper spoke about how his new found bromance with Cassper Nyovest came about. He initially revealed how they’ve known each other for years but were never as close as they are now.
“You know, we come a long way. So our mothers are friends, but our relationship was always… My relationship with Cass was not the most stable relationship for years,” said Khuli.
After his break in music he attempted to hurt back on his feet and that meant confiding in a right person. Nyovest seemed like a better option.
“I needed to talk to somebody who wouldn’t be biased, that’s not gonna gas me up. And I needed to speak to somebody who’s younger than me. And I needed to speak to somebody who’s also been a fan of me. So, yeah.
“And because our relationship was just like [he motions with his hands again], let me reach out to him, you know? Because I just also kind of picked up his narrative had also switched up where he was kind of being a bit more positive and blah blah blah.”
Chana went on to mention how Cass’s timeline compelled him to “hit him up”. At first it was going to be about making music but it grew to a friendship they never planned but turned out great.
“He was preaching that stuff on his timeline. And then I hit him up. We were just talking about some music we were gonna do together, but I then just kind of opened up about where I’m at, and it was just like.
“After that conversation I felt like ‘Fuck! I thought I had problems!’ I thought I had some issues in my life. This guy’s dealing with the most, but his self-belief in his faith and his resilience is just on another level and that that inspires me a lot and that motivated me.”
